Observing Programs at Keck Observatory with DEIMOS on December 29 2013 for Prochaska + Associates

This page organizes all of the projects for DEIMOS on December 29. Each program page should include: (i) the optimal setup for the observation; (ii) a target list with finder charts and recommended exposure times; (iii) any additional notes of interest (S/N desired, priority of targets); (iv) Worst conditions (seeing, clouds) under which observations will still be useful

Here is the current observing plan:

We get the telescope at 06:39 LST (12:24 am HST), and then begins at LST 11:53 in the morning.
